Week 3 – Written Response. To wrap up this unit on integrating sources, you will now read an essay from your textbook. You will read two pieces: William Faulkner’s (2019) “A Rose for Emily” (p. 851)

  • William Faulkner’s (2019) “A Rose for Emily” (p. 851)
  • and Bailey Basinger’s (2019) “Tension, Contradiction, and Ambiguity: Gender Roles in ‘A Rose for Emily'” (p. 838)

While this is not a literature class, literature provides a good opportunity to not only think critically, one of the important goals of this course, but to practice quoting and citing. 

Task:

  • First, read Faulkner (2019). A rose for Emily. In R. Bullock & M.D. Goggin (Eds.), The Norton field guide to writings with readings (5th ed., pp. 851-860). W.W. Norton.
    • You may also choose to listen to the text as you follow along by clicking here.
  • Second, read Basinger’s analysis of Faulkner’s famous story. 
  • When you finish, answer Question. 3 on p. 844. As you focus on the question, “What other quotations might she have used,” identify at least three quotes from Faulkner’s story. Explain the quote first. Then, explain how and why you would use each one in revising Basinger’s paper.
    • Please follow this method:
